Pfizer’s purpose is to deliver breakthroughs that change patients’ lives. R&D is at the heart of fulfilling Pfizer’s purpose as we work to translate advanced science and technologies into the therapies that matter most.
We have a leading portfolio of products and medicines that support wellness and prevention, as well as treatment and cures for diseases across a broad range of therapeutic areas; and we have an industry-leading pipeline of promising new products that have the potential to challenge some of the most feared diseases of our time, like Alzheimer's disease and cancer.
To ensure we can continue to deliver on our commitments to the patients, customers and shareholders who rely on us, we are focused on improving the way we do business; on operating with transparency in everything we do; and on listening to the views of all of the people involved in health care decisions. Through working in partnership with everyone from patients to health care providers and managed care organizations to world governments and non-governmental organisations, our goal is to ensure that people everywhere have access to innovative treatments and quality health care.
Our Values and Culture
To fully realize Pfizer’s purpose – Breakthroughs that change patients’ lives – we have established a clear set of expectations regarding “what” we need to achieve for patients and “how” we will go about achieving those goals.
The “how” is represented by four simple, powerful values – courage, excellence, equity and joy – that define our company and our culture.
Courage. Breakthroughs start by challenging convention, especially in the face of uncertainty or adversity. This happens when we think big, speak up and are decisive.
Excellence. We can only change patients’ lives when we perform at our best together. This happens when we focus on what matters, agree who does what and measure our outcomes.
Equity. We believe that every person deserves to be seen, heard and cared for. This happens when we are inclusive, act with integrity and reduce health care disparities.
Joy. We give ourselves to our work, but it also gives to us. We find joy when we take pride, recognize one another and have fun.
